There seems to be an affinity of science fiction with music, but it remains hard to pin down or express. Some questions for me are
1) Does Space Opera sometimes have a musical element in its structure, and not just in its content.
2) Does Universe Opera, or the most cosmic science fiction, have any special affinity with music?
3) Can anyone think of any particularly illuminating examples?
STAR MAKER with one of its multiple universes being a cosmos of pure music
ANATHEM with its philosophical music for the auts.
Can anyone propose other examples and/or cast any light on the link between SF and music?
